Today, Sarah Moore is on Scotland’s East Coast on the lookout for quality discards at Wallyford Recycling Centre. There’s a trailer load of sash windows to be rescued with the help of designer maker Rupert Blanchard, a once cherished sewing box gets some loving attention from upcycler Sarah Peterson and it’s a retro dollshouse that Sarah stops from hitting the skips.

Only just spotted this.

I'm in the process of making new slip covers for Ikea Drona boxes to refresh them and so they fit in with my colour scheme Namsnanny but I was glad to know there is a new series and thought others might be too smile

Thanks PippZ for letting us know.
I guess I'm just a bit jaded with these programs, as the get access to things for free that we the public dont get. Plus, they have good connections to sell them on to.
Like most of us I've been making do and mending for ever. But now I 'upcycle' for a hobby.

Here is a decoupage project of mine.

I agree namsnanny though it’s not a bad programme. I think they should re-name it as it is definitely not “for nothing” most cost a lot of money to upcycle

Beautiful up cycling!
